    The three of us, combined, have organized or attended more than 500 events, including meetings, conferences, workshops, and symposia, around the world. After participating in so many events, we concluded that a guide for hosting a successful event is greatly needed. Too often, an event is negatively affected by preventable issues, such as poor planning, a terrible venue, unskilled speakers, ineffective moderators, bad food service, or technical difficulties. In this article, we provide practical guidelines for planning and executing smooth-running, well-received events.
